Fontodi Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo 2012
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
Wine SpectatorAn opulent, fruity style, boasting black cherry, blueberry and spice flavors, accented by tobacco and earth details. This needs time to find equilibrium and stretch out on the complex finish. Best from 2017 through 2026. 3,800 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastRipe plum, black cherry, blue flower, baking spice, toasted oak and a balsamic note are just some of the aromas and flavors you'll find on this full-bodied, structured red. Velvety tannins support the juicy flavors and the fruit richness absorbs the hefty alcohol. It's still a bit on its oak and will be even better once it has a chance to come together. Drink 2017-2027.
